I was nearly impaled by a pair of ducks while walking the dogs this afternoon. By “nearly” I mean they buzzed within ten feet of my head. I think we both caught each other by surprise as I ran up a hill and suddenly popped into their flight path. I spent the next couple of minutes after that contemplating what it would be like to be run into by a duck flying at top speed. It probably would be pretty spectacular to see no matter what the result.
